"In 1976 Arnulf Rainer created a series of pieces which were responses to Franz Xaver Messerschmidt’s sculptures. Rainer called them “Conversations” with Messerschmidt. The series which Shaun and I did, is in a way an homage to that series, or a continuation of that idea. Essentially, it is about collaboration and the sharing of ideas with people who are having similar conversations in their work.
This series is the 3rd installment of a series called Conversatin’ in which Shaun Roberts photographed and made prints of 4 sculptures I had made several years ago. I then took the prints and responded to those images, drawing, painting, collaging, etc on top of them." - Derek Weisberg
